speeches in 2008 and look at what obama is said it is really about hope and change. there is no doubt. >> jennifer: well, today. but you had an interesting blog post about the event with mitt romney and soliciting donations. they purchase $5,000 worth of donations from wal-mart. and when people came in the door, there was a volunteer who was directing them to the donation table and saying just get one of those donations so you can give it up front, so it was sort of this staged thing, and then they slowed down the packing of the boxes, so it could look line mitt romney -- >> you never do theater? i'm shocked. [overlapping speakers]. >> i'm shocked that there is staging going on at political events. >> no, you are right. staging happens at political events. and we were told this was a relief rally. >> right so they were restoring what people should do for overs. >> no the red cross said we done want supplies. >> 30 seconds, you two, i need a me diction, duf, and your credibility is on the line. >> i think it is going to be very close. >> jennifer: are we going to do
would go out yesterday and say i'm endorseing president obama because of his climate change stance. that's crazy town. >> thethe number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen. >> honestly, don't you want this election over with already. >> eliot: i think the vice president got it right with that last one. more with month mo rocca, can we fix the electorate system. that's next. and cookies n creme. pure hershey's. ♪ ♪ the trucks are going farther. the new 2013 ram 1500. ♪ ♪ with the best-in-class fuel economy. engineered to move heaven and earth. ♪ ♪ guts. glory. ram. >> eliot: more than ten years since the 2000 presidential election debacle and still the system is deeply flawed. votes go uncounted. voters are disenfranchised, and the winner of the popular vote won't necessarily be the one named president. is this really the best we can do? the makers of the new nonpartisan documentary "electoral dysfunction" certainly don't think so. >> colored pencils and markers. who is voting for colored pencil pencils? okay. who is voting for markers? markers h
real change backspin and -- change? obama promised change, but he could not deliver it. i have promised change and i have a record of achieving it. we need a real turnaround if we're going to get our economy going and get americans working again. i have led that kind of effort before. in business, i helped people turn their dreams into success stories. together, we built names like staples, bright horizons and sports authority and helped create over 100,000 jobs. when i became governor of massachusetts, the economy was in bad shape and the budget was out of balance. the legislature was 85% democrat and people were not sure if we could get the job done. we work together. by the time i left office, we had moved past 20 states in job creation and turned a deficit into a rainy day fund. whether in public office or private business, i did not ask people what party they belong to. i asked them what ideas they brought to the table. as the governor, i met with leaders of both parties to find common ground. that is what i will do as president, and i will start on day one. on my first day of offi
that even with those demographic changes, it's still going to be a struggle for president obama to get that 34 point margin again. >> peter, you spent a lot of time on college campuses. talk about the ground game you see. what are campaigns doing to try to get younger people to the polls? >> i was just in ohio and the talk among the political class there is how obama's really targeted his campaign visits to college campuses. ohio state, ohio university, kent state, bowling green. to sort of draw in these folks and since early vote has started, they can just bus students and young people who come to these rallies over to early voting locations in these counties. so obama has sort of done that while leaving the campaign appearances and sort of blue collar areas to people like bill clinton and joe biden. but young people, they aren't watching tv, they aren't consuming media in the same way that older voters are. only somewhere between 24% and 28% of young people, according to pew, watched your traditional television. so the m campaigns are targetin them digitally. social is big in this el
are going to be vulnerable. we've already seen a change, this just came out publicly, anderson. he was supposed to head out to travel on monday to florida. his first stop. he's now going to be traveling on monday, as you know michelle obama canceled a new hampshire appearance on monday or pardon me, tuesday, because of weather concerns. vice president joe biden was supposed to be heading to virginia beach tomorrow. he's canceled that. so i think we shouldn't be surprised. they're keeping their eye on the storm and i would expect we'll be seeing more changes. >>> let us know what you think. follow me on twitter. i'm tweeting tonight. >>> more raw politics next, starting with who's got the enthusiasm edge. four years ago, obama voters were fired up ready to go. four years later, are voters fired up to fire him? gary tuchman takes the pulse. we're also talk to mary matalin and james carville. how did i get here? dumb luck? or good decisions? ones i've made. ones we've all made. about marriage. children. money. about tomorrow. here's to good decisions. who matters most to you says the
-romney ads show images of president obama. >> you can't change washington from the inside. >> republicans use sad, depressed faces in 21% of their ads, mostly to illustrate unemployment. democrats only use that tactic in 1% of their ads. but democrats went heavy on the elderly, using elderly voices or images in 38% of their ads. >> i was suddenly 60 years old. i had no health care. >> a topic republicans largely stayed away from. despite the emphasis on the hispanic vote, only 2% of ads from either side were in spanish during this period. the use of charts, numbers and statistics was used heavily by both groups. 65% of time for democrats, 79% for republicans. the american flag always an iconic image in political ads was shown in 29% of democratic ads. the flag appeared in just 6% of republican ads but in a much different light. talk about being worried about what he called the never-ending security threats in benghazi, specifically mentioned the rise in islamic extremism. >> republican groups used clips from newspaper headlines in 18% of their ads. >> mitt romney would have let us go under. l
's mayor michael bloomberg said that climate change contributed to the storm, and endorsed mr. obama as the best candidate to tackle the climate change, saying he could still inspire the hope he did four years ago, despite what mr. bloomberg called a disappointing four year term. and brian, there is still one significant event, tomorrow, the last monthly unemployment report, before the election. >> peter alexander, in virginia, thank you. with the romney campaign in virginia, thank you >>> let's get an update on the other side of this, our chief political correspondent, chuck todd, so nice to see everybody getting along, as always. what does it come down to, for "team obama". >> reporter: well, i can tell you, what it comes down to these days are the candidates' schedule, and this is what is telling you everything blood pressure, you would be forgiven to be thinking that you're looking at an airline's hub and spokes system has to change planes in ohio, the point is, he goes to ohio every single day between now and the election, while sprinkling in the battleground states. now let me
very much wants to change from blue for barack obama back to read with the win for the republicans. it will be three other names under the virginia ballot. he served in virginia state senate as a member of congress between 1997 and 2009. carey johnson was the republican governor of new mexico. a representative of the green party. he she is a position focused on the environment. she was arrested for taking supplies and food for activists in texas. this could make a difference in the tight race. >> another big competition on the ballot is the senate race between tim kaine and george allen. the numbers show the lead is shrinking. the latest poll shows 50% and allen at 46. 4% are undecided. allen has gained since the beginning of october. they know d.c. and virginia and both are focused on the economy. >> the one thing to do is not raise taxes. that would only cause more job losses. >> that -- i want to make sure the sacrifice is shared. >> in the final days of campaigning, both are leaning on big virginia names for some help. senator mark warner and republican gov. bob mcdonnell. >> w
be a transformation story. obama talked about change we can believe in and he tried to prove purvey the story. he was derailed by the midterm elections. gerri: had to have people who will help you make your case next year, right? >> if youwant to go for the impossible future you can't do it with the class or c. class players. you need the "a-team." and that dealing with chronic plays and they hav had to reduce their mission. gerri: what do you mean by impossle future? >> mostly what you see with ceos and presidents sitting predicable goals. goals that are more or less a different version of the status quo. in impossible future is a goal that is not predictable or likely but when you have to charge you take a stand for. for example an impossible ture in the first 100 days whether it president obama or president romney after the election might be take a stand for formal employment in america. nobody actually knows how to achieve that, but once we stand for that, we start moving into that future, we know the what but we don't know the how, we discovered the how in the process of going for it. gerri:
. but as mr. obama has found, offering whole scale change is a promise that's hard to live up to. >> well, for more on the job awaiting whoever wins the keys to the white house on tuesday, i spoke with don mcmanus, the washington columnist for "the los angeles times." that report is not easy to offer full-scale change in the system that america has. but it is right, isn't it, that the vision that mitt romney have and the vision that barack obama have is quite different. >> oh, it is different. it's a classic american debate between the idea of an expansive activist federal government -- that's obama, of course -- and a minimal, smaller, shrinking federal government, that's mitt romney. so for all the talk of bipartisanship we've heard in the last two weeks from both candidates, there's not a lot of bipartisanship out there. >> when you speak to republican voters, you've been out around the country a lot, there is a real sense that they are very angry with what's this president has done to the country in terms of expanding government. do democrats feel the same about what mitt romney would
tax code, a dysfunctional politics, how are you going to change that? i haven't seen obama do the sort of big change agenda he did four years ago. i've seen romney make gestures at it, but not lay it out in a way that's forceful. that i think would make a change, want to do actual change. >> let me continue that theme. i want to pick up there as we turn to the democratic governor of battleground, colorado, john hickenlooper and the republican governor, paul ryan's home state of wisconsin, scott walker. governors, welcome back to "meet the press," both of you. >> glad to be back. >> both states are pretty tight here, pretty remarkable is tight as well, good news for romney. a rrn hasn't won your state since 1984. and in colorado, governor hickenlooper, look at our latest polling from nbc news and marist. 48-48. i know talking to the obama campaign. i know they think it's not that close, but they know it's tight. governor hickenlooper, you start, what's decisive? what tips the scales in your state and in this election? >> well i think if you look at the mess that president obama inherite
," endorsing president obama based on his leadership on climate change. >> five days before the election, the news on the jobs market is, well, kind of mixed according to important news. filer americans filed for unemployment benefits 363,000 below what was predicted and low enough to suggest employers are hiring again. that is good news but not worth the super storm preventing new jersey and washington, dc from reporting so the governor made estimates. and planned layoffs jump by 40 percent during october, the highest level in five months and it is economic to downsize as they try to make earnings goals by the end of the year. and now to the set with john bussey. we are looking at how the jobs we in the private sector are shaping up. gear shaping up to be the biggest gain since february, a very big and important move. if you get a paper paycheck, their name could be at bottom it, private sector numbers, obviously, and it is one that we obviously watched to predict what going on. they recently redid how they figures this out and trying to make it look like labor department numbers. >>she
change is barack obama. mitt romney has completely denied it. so i think it's a moment. the president gives his endorsement, colin powell's ad who is a republican run aring in these states from a persuasion point of view and then you have chris christie standing next to him. for all of those who are independent or moderate republicans, certainly they are going to take a second look at the president. >> we'll see what kind of margin president obama gets among republicans. but, governor, he's way behind in the swing states from 2008. >> we will find out in five days. it's going to be fascinating. >>> next, growing anger over the massive blackouts. when will the lights go back on? i'll speak with the spokesman from coned when we come back after this break. >>> the blackout continues and a r visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles in just one week. why wait if you don't have to. neutrogena®. >> announcer: you never know when, but thieves can steal your identity and turn your life upside down. >> hi. >> hi. you know, i can save you 15% today if you open up a charge card account with us. >
, indicting president obama's record. he said the president promised change in 2008, but that he couldn't deliver it. he said he is promising change but he has a record of accomplishing it. he said, if, and then he said when, he becomes president, that's always the top line for his supporters in the crowd, he's not going to let america settle. he says he will not attack his predecessor, a reference to the obama campaign that he claims continues to blame president george w. bush for any of america's challenges at this time. right now the campaign remains confident. they think this think will be down to the wire. they say it shows a different story than some of the public polls, and they feel very strongly they're going to win this on tuesday. that's the latest. back to you. >> all right, i'll take it. coming up in just a few minutes, hard ball's chris matthews. we're going to ask him if something unexpected is going on in pennsylvania. and could that change the race? well he should know because he is from the keystone state. that is just ahead for you. >>> let's get the latest on the dev
't one obama emphasized particularly throughout the course of the race. hope and change were difficult words for him obviously because they didn't mean now what they meant four years ago. after mitt romney started to talk about change, emphasizing the fact he's a washington outsider, president obama started to respond. we find ourselves in the odd position of being back where we were four years ago here four days out. >> speaking of opposition, it's interesting you have the final jobs report, if you told people maybe two months ago it would kind of slide by the news coverage in a sense, they'd be surprised. we know so much about the economy, but perhaps it also tells us maybe the folks the at home haven't been measuring the number. they measure how they feel, and that's the determining factor on tuesday. >> no question about it. the question is where does this new stack fit ft narrative of either campaign. mitt romney is saying we're surrounded by zoom and doom. the reason he touts out this torture change argument of his. as your prior segment demonstrated, there is a lot of good news
trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy, that's not change. >> president obama has tried to convince folks that these last four years have been a success. >> by the way, when you try to change the facts just because they're inconvenient to your campaign, that's definitely not change. gee wants to take all the ideas from the first term, you know, the stimulus, the borrowing, obama care, all the rest, and then go back and do it all over again. >> you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. >> we're four days away from a fresh start, four days away from the first day of a new beginning. >> you know that i'll fight for you and your family every single day as hard as i know how. you know that. >> we've got joy. >> i was going to answer that. >> joy reid. thank you both for joining us. everybody knows the stakes are enormous. that's signals aren't just where they're at, they're being radiated on the nightly news, this program, everywhere. aren't you impressed by romney who is often very stiff and overdressed, never ut buttons his tie, more dressed up an ev
of this continuing crisis hardly merit notice. barack obama pledges change but touts dodd-frank, a bulky, watered-down version of financial reform that scarcely makes a ripple in the vast sea of corruption and abuse. mitt romney campaigns as the f banker's pal and says he'll make dodd- frank disappear altogether. if you're appalled by this, so is the man who held the thankless job of special inspector general in arge of i policing tarp, the bailt's troubled asset ren.ef pla before he signed on, neil p barofsky was a federal prosecutor in new york chasing white-collar criminals and dr d lords. he busted 50 members of a columbian guerrilla group deeply involved in narcotics trafficking. at tarp, he was assigned to ferret out waste, fraud and abuse. the banks didn't make it easy, and neither did the u.s. government. neil barofsky tells this story in his book, "bailout: an inside account of how washington abandoned main street while rescuing wall street." he is now a senior fellow and adjunct professor at the new york university school of law. neil barofsky, welcome. >> thank you. >> when you were
and they think he can come to the smaller ones and build a fire wall. we see the obama team make changes because of the hurricane. vice president biden cancelled events he would do in coastal virginia. they don't want to get in the way of the storm. emergency personnel would have to deal with that. and then the president is leaving washington on sunday in stead of monday to get to orlando on monday . heap's geth briefings and he has to make sure it is not a hurricane kathryn where he is out campaigning and. >> and thank you very much. >> and pending attack targeting american soil over seas. we heard it before. this one was stopped in its this u.s. embassy was not the terrorist only target. and the respects behind it. and also, tens of millions of people in this storm's path. and new warnings by the hour. you are looking live now as it moves n. and that is it a reporter on the field. southeast coast feeling its power. elizabeth is on the beach in north carolina. hurricane sandy is beating down on the outer banks of north carolina. we'll havelet details for you after the break. where others fail,
? >> for my thinking, the biggest change in the race is to obama's favor and that's been this storm, you know. any day that we're not talking about the economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the national guardsmen, the mayors, the governors, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday
. today, the attacks were back. >> their best bet is on sin yi six. >> president obama delivering a closing argument in three battle grounds. >> i know what change looks like. i fought for it. you have, too. after all we've been through together we can't give up now. >> mitt romney spending his day in virginia, a state republicans are desperate to flip. >> we're going to win on november 6th. >> he countered the president's closing arguments. >> i believe america needs real change. we're going to give to it american people. >> the latest poll still shows a tight race but new polls in three key states had president obama on top. it's now all hands on deck. vice president biden stumped in iowa. >> american people asking, who can they trust? >> barack obama should be the next president. >> and in ohio, ann romney got emotional as she asked for votes. >> we have come to know this country on an extraordinary level. i can't tell you how much i love it. >> michael bloomberg endorsed president obama. he had been critical of the president and mitt romney. today he said hurricane sandy resha
is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and the subject is being changed a week out. there's a lot of early voting going on. i'm curious if there's a thought in your mind whether the timing of the change in topic. >> well, i mean, obviously the changing of the subject that everybody doesn't have on their mind the economy and jobs, obama's policies or the failed results of those policies, instead. rightly americans are concerned about our friends in north carolina or new hampshire and everywhere in between. it's good for obama. it's not goin necessarily goingo turn the world upside down, but as i say, any day that obama's record is not in front of the american people is a relief for obama. >> greta: does it help? i don't know if you've seen the words of governor chris christie. he had some high praise for the president. does that have any impact, a republican governor, and one w
to who were in my shoes last time that voted for barack obama and have changed their mind. host: robb christensen, go ahead. guest: he is giving his opinion but we have had a tremendous turnout of early voting in north carolina. in 2008, 51% of the electorate voted before election day. essentially, obama won the election before election day. john mccain won the election day vote but obama had already won the election in the early voting period. we have already had 1 million people voted north carolina. -- voters in north carolina. at this point, the democrats are doing better on the early voting, it appears. we don't have a vote count so we don't know exactly what the tally is. if you look at things -- we know things like number of active americans who have voted and that is up from the percentage who voted in 2008. percentage is greater this time at this juncture that was in 2008. the number of younger voters who tend to be more for obama than for running a, a greater percentage is up this time compared to 2008. those are all good signs for the obama campaign. but, what that will mea
difference. people are hungry for a change and plan for the future. president obama has not offered a vision for the next four years and i think that's where romney has turned this election around. and i've got a plan, i'm going to get this economy going again. we don't need -- by the way, reorganizing government. i was in the cabinet to reshuffle the chairs of the cabinet. this government doesn't need a reorganized cabinet of jobs and business. what it needs is a president that understands business. >> very quickly, the hispanic vote, does romney have to win to get the state of florida? >> i think romney is going to do much better with the hispanic vote in florida than any other state. >> that's a given because of cubans but is 40 the magic number? >> i think 40 is a very good number for him. >> that's what we'll be watching for. mel martinez, thanks for coming on. >>> supersized panel, everything. i supersized everything. i've got david gregory and a supersized panel. first, the white house soup of the day, one of my favorites that i never got to try, black bean chorizo. many of the networ
you are going come out and endorse president obama and tie it to climate change. that is a back door deal . no one in their right mind would say i am endorsing president obama because of a climate change stance. that is crazy town. >> steve: we sound frustrate we are. there are reports here in new york city people don't have food they are dumpster dive looters and people using blackberries and iphones as flash lights and people are stealing them from them it is extraordinary situation . >> gretchen: a lot like hurricane katrina. they saw all of the dead bodies afterwards. >> steve: if this was a republican president do you think that the main stream media would handle it differently? the president's photop in new jersey is now in las vegas. >> eric: i love chris christy and he did victory laps with president obama and for fema, but where is fema? i am in favor of letting the states handle all of these things. but if you are going to do victory laps and say fema is the greatest institution in the last four or five years, they better be here. i haven't seen anything. not a thing. it is
and nation forward. that is michael bloomberg endorsing president obama over the issue of climate change and the hurricane sandy fallout. lots of news stories coming from the fallout. the hurricane death toll has been rising. the hurricane sandy death toll now above the 90 and rising as emergency workers canvas flood and fire-ravaged neighborhoods. police say at least 59 people were killed during a storm in new york city and a new jersey. , and security secretary and fema deputy administrator richard will be in a staten island, new york today. we are talking about the presidential battleground and non-swing states. we will go to john in saratoga springs, new york, on our line for independents. caller: good morning. i want to make three points. one is the electoral college cost to go. i mean, we have two parties but control everything. they divvy up the districts, now the states. and i mean, it has been four or five election cycles and pretty much know who the red and blue are. and they are spending billions of dollars on a seven or eight states or what ever to win. real democracy -- it s
for the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. we have to continue to look for change, could change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again. we will address the tremendous debt this country has, $16 trillion in debt, increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of president obama, our national debt will exceed $20 trillion. this is horrible to give to our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. we cannot continue on with these policies. host: one more call for you from gwen, michigan, on the independent line. victoria, you're on with mr. bennett of the ohio republican party. caller: good morning. i wanted to make clarification for a caller from earlier about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. it is not being clear enough to our voters that there is a giant difference between a private-sector union and a government tax-funded union. in the private sector, the union leaders and the workers negotiate with these business owners -- very appropriate. in the tax-funded, government- run unions, the union
. employers did add 171,000 jobs last month. out on the campaign trail mitt romney and barack obama responded to the numbers. >> unless we change course, we may well be looking at another recession. >> we've made real progress but we are here today because we know weave got more work to do. >> president obama spending his day campaigning in 0 hio mitt romney in way. only four days to go until we go to vote, both men spending the weekend trying to sway the undecided. >>> the rising unemployment numbers do not bode well for veterans coming home from overseas so today at a joint base anacostia bowling in d.c. scott broom got a look at what's facing employers and veterans as they try to make a match with each other. >> reporter: they call this job fair at joint base anacostia bowling "hiring our heroes." >> they've got the integrity, the work ethic that people are looking for. >> reporter: this is where veterans have traded uniform for business suit, although some are still wearing their stripes. >> we have over 60 employers. >> reporter: lieutenant colonel kathleen is organizing these job fairs
in a bipartisan way. the romney complaint is that president obama made promiseless of hope and change and couldn't deliver. he couldn't because of grid lock that he caused. he simply doesn't have an administration to get things done. >> analyst said it is it like a courtroom where attorneys make the closing arguments. it is getting last, but we are hearing new lineups. >> that's right. and when you have the campaigns packing their calendars as busy as they have in 73 hours and change. every change of rhetoric balk becomes significant and today governor romney made the argument over the four years of obama era, the country's confidence and attitude of americans are degraded by ongoing great recession and conflict in washington and inability to find political resolution . mr. romney issing restored confidence. >> three more days . three more days we can get to work rebuilding our country. and our confidence becomes resphored and our conviction is stronger and confidence that we are on a solid path of steady improvement and college graduates coming out of school and getting good jobs and confidence
. >> and katty's point, does that get the people skiletted in 2008 by this hope, change message and by obama as the candidate as excited as playing to the fear that -- especially playing to 12 years ago, i'm not so sure. chris: ok. >> i agree with that. if at any point obama had said here's what we're going to do and it's really exciting, over the next four years we started doing this thing and now we have the largest wind farm in the world in oregon, we're going to have another one in nevada. if he had just come with that kind of -- chris: big question. but paul krugman in "the new york times" on friday said he's afraid to do that. because he will be hit again with big spending and more deficits if he proposes anything. >> and playing the republicans' game. chris: ok. let's look at what could be the key to everything. ohio. and you've written about it. every winning republican has carried ohio. and joe, your magazine, "time" magazine has a big spread on it this week. why hoeup will decide the election -- ohio will decide the election and your ohio poll has obama up five points. the gender g
: unbelievable. speechless. also back to the campaign trail. president obama changing his tune when it comes to one of his key promises. he no longer says turning around the economy, his quote, one-term proposition. >> so we've made real progress these past four years. but colorado, we all know our work's not yet done are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. martha: all right. staten eye rand, -- island, new york, not far from the statue of liberty is a disaster now. those farms are pushed into the marsh by hurricane sandy. thousands are freezing and the weather is getting worse and they are hungry and waiting for rescue. the new york city marathon is ready to begin, as it always does in staten island. look at picture of the "new york post" abuse of power. what you see are two huge generators for power from the marathon. they have heated tents using to get ready for the marathon. the big question on the paper is this abu
the storm devastating his city could be evidence of climate change and said president obama developed a strong environmental record during the first term. mayor bloomberg is a former republican now turned independent. >>> all right. let's talk about what's going on here. i got asked the question did the storm slow down or did the storm get bigger. it's been very large but it slowed down when it came inland. this shows you how large the storm s but it's starting to move nor to the north. sothe -- more to the north. so the rain bands over the past several days not so much for today. we can see most of the rain and snow off to the north. and i am going to go ahead and zoom in closer to home so you can see what we are working in this morning and going into the afternoon. ready much dry. mainly clear skies and partly cloudy skies so some of you are in the clear right now. you will step outside see some stars out there. but then we will have clouds trying to move in throughout the day. that's why i am going to give it a sun/cloud mix throughout the day. much more sunshine than over the past
obama and romney make change a key issue on stump. nbc's chuck todd joins us now. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: the polls close in ohio in 108 hours and between now at 7:30 p.m. tuesday night when the polls close, i don't know if an hour is going to go by without one of the two candidates for president or two candidates for vice president trekking through at least one town somewhere in the buckeye state. >> i'm counting on you to make sure we will win. we can't lose. let's go vote! let's get this done. >> reporter: and the final chapter of the 2012 campaign has begun, and it's all come down to ohio which president obama and mitt romney will visit six separate times during the last days of this race. today president obama will spend the entire day in ohio but a look at the rest of his campaign schedule makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for air force one with ohio stops every day through election day. for his part, mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but hoping to win over wisconsin and looking to broaden the battleground map campaigning in pennsylvania on
, at another point, president obama was asked about climate change and he had this to say. >> we're not moving as fast as we need to and this is an issue that future generations, mtv viewers are going to have to be dealing with, even more than the older generation is. >> jennifer: to me that is very interesting. do you think that environmentalists might see a general statement like that as just kicking the can down the road? >> i think environmentalists saw him kicking the can down the road by the fact that we had four debates and climate change didn't come up once. in the foreign policy debate teacher's unions and the national debt got more at attention that climate change did. and this week they have a result of climate change blowing right up their shorts on the east coast. so future historians assuming they are any, are going to look at this time in history and think we're all out of our minds. >> charlie the hurricane is coming for that reason when we all know that it is because governor romney capitlated at a farm in virginia.

not provide the people any money. fortunately with the obama administration this has changed and these people are coming back and being able to be given some money, so on the federal level i think there's some improvement. when it comes to san francisco i think we need to do more, and i would research this further and answer that question later. thank you. >> all right thank you sir. >> i am under the assumption i'm a problem solver. first you have to identify the problem and i would lump this into three groups. you have people who do not want to be helpedda that want to be live on the street. you have people that don't know where the help is and people people that want it and we need to identify the people that want to be helped that can be helped and there are certain people no matter what you do they do not want help. they want to live on the streets and that in turn we should enforce the laws on the books, and that is the only way i believe you can solve the problem. it's not about money. it's about identifying the problem and i believe you've got to identify who the homeless people a
moments away. >>> the storm is drastically changing president obama and mitt romney's campaign plans with eight days before america votes. >>> the san francisco giants are world series champions. i'm veronica de la cruz. this is "first look" on msnbc. >>> this is d-day with hurricane sandy. waves are growing ever more om nis and the threat of storm surges from 4 to 11 feet high. this is the scene about 100 miles north of boston. hundreds of thousands have been told to evacuate in coastal a areas all the way into new england. the storm claimed 65 lives in the caribbean and has the potential to paralyze new york and other big cities. early this morning president obama has signed emergency declarations for connecticut, pennsylvania and rhode island, clearing the way for help from fema. let's get right to bill karins who has the latest forecast. what do you have? >> the storm has strengthened instead of 75 so that's very impressive that this storm continues to lower its pressure, even going over the cooler waters now and it's only about 386 miles away from new york city. it's actually mo
to sue -- you said you wanted to sue president obama over the change in policy that young people would not be deported. are you still planning the lawsuits? >> he violated the constitution like gov. vilsack, he cannot do that with memorandum, and this was bogging people down. the answer is yes. >> where do you stand on that? >> in the process? there are plaintiffs who won't come on until after the election. i will hold the suit up until after the election and we will get the suit filed. >> the answer is -- we wouldn't have this issue if congress had done their job. one branch doesn't work well and another steps in. i think the president took a necessary step. >> we will see a couple of commercials right now, the first from mrs. vilsack's campiagn. >> i am christie vilsack and i approve this message. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> mr. king, mrs. vilsack has called you an embarassment to iowa. do some of the quotes embarrass you? >> i've said by the time i eliminated the questions and dishonesty, the only thing left was "i'm christie vilsack and i approve this message." [laughter] the one that i
to the degree we have averaged 8% over and the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. good continue to look for change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again while also addressing the tremendous debt that this country has. $16 trillion in debt increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of obama, the national debt will exceed $20 trillion. this is a horrible thing to give to our children, our grandchildren and great- grandchildren. we just cannot keep going with these tax policies. host: one last call for you on the independent line from michigan. victoria, you are wrong with mr. bennett of the ohio republican party. caller: i wanted to make a clarification for a caller that called in earlier that had a question about the interpretation that republicans are against unions. and not being made clear enough, i feel, to our voters that there is a a giant difference between a private-sector union and a government tax funded union. in the private sector, the union leaders and the workers are able to negotiate, very appropriate. in
for obama is the status quo with stagnation. a vote for mitt romney is bold change and prosperity. the president made all kinds of promises to be a bipartisan leader and wasn't able to do that with obamacare with not a single republican vote and he promised to restore the economy, bring down the debt, cut taxes, balance the budget, et cetera, and that hasn't happened. he says if the country is behind him and elects him and if democrats are willing to work with him he can militia it and a slap back from the senate saying if mitter harry reid romney has a fantasy of casting severely conservative agenda he will not get help from senate democrats which echoes what the republicans said when president obama took office and now before mitt romney wins, assuming he would, the democrats are saying they will not help. >>shepard: we used to watch the last three or four days of campaign where the candidates spend their money but they have so much money they can spend all they want and now we watch where they go. what do you make of the fact that mitt romney is going back to pennsylvania? >>ca
weeks we're seeing the glimmer of hope and change obama and trying to get that back and the testament with independent voters and women and they voted for him in 2008 because, again, he claimed to be a new type of politician. i don't think this was working. it's falling over flat. it's hard to look like the inspirational candidate when 90% of your advertising aimed at knee-capping your opponent, but he suggests that he knows that they have a problem with those voting segments. >> paul: you know, kim, i can't recall an election where both sides seem so convinced they're going to win coming in the final days, usually a concessions in 2008, mccain really doesn't have much of a chance, a hail mary. this time both sides seem convinced they're going to win. how do you explain that. >> i think both sides have two reasons to win. the 2008 turnout machine and some aspects that look like they'll get a decent job. but on the romney side, enthusiasm of voters and independents swinging to him in a huge way. it's important, it's hard to win an election unless you have independents behind you and yo
one, still would have been built. neil: mayor bloomberg, who are support him out for barack obama on climate change. >> the mayor did a good job on the storm, i applaud that. i did exactly the same thing when they said they would be terrorist. neil: had he been downtown and look at it? >> you have to go forward with events like this because the fact is the city has to show resiliency. natural disasters happen all the time. neil: they can barely handle trading. >> that route will not affect the storm cleanup at all. it is great for the economy, great to get people's eyes. my whole focus was people's eyes were focused down. wanted to get the eyes focused up. try to go through as many things as possible. the mayor made the right decision. he's taking his country in the wrong direction and we can't stand four more years of barack obama and this libya thing i was told a day later that this was a big, big scandal. several people in the three or four days after that called me and said there is a lot to this and i commend your two reporters. i was warned within two days of the event it wa
it that obama. even though we getittle changes we still go 35 miles per hour when we should be going 70. people though the rest of the world is not right. the first abate mitt romney proved he can meet -- lead the country. lou: argably he will change the history with that performance. what can be done by president romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation achine? >> number one data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered undr this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemployed givg up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for t multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they com u
minute counts and now the storm come it is forcing president obama and mitt romney to change campaign plans. president obama cancelling his trip to orlando and heading back to washington dc. mike emmanuel is tanding by. a quick audible by the president. >> he's in orlando and decided to pull the plug on the event in the university of central florida designed to rally the youth vote. he was due to do three events with forevermore president clinton. the event will continue on here but the president due to the deteriorating weather conditions in washington decide go back to washington to oversee and monitor the federal reponce to the hurricane that is hitting the east coast dilemma for the obama campaign. you want your message out to people yet to rote and then critical yob of leading the federal government. here is the president talking about the hurricane in fema head quarters. my message to the governors and mayors, anything they need we'll be there. we'll cut through red tape and not get bogged down with a lot of rules. >> so the visit's president to orlando was a visit to the campai
, as i tell you about how the media is not focusing on climate change, it's amazing because they're literally getting battered by the storm and still not recognizing it. here is a collection of media reports on hurricane sandy. >> obama: ref pre-positioned assets where local personnel is working with state governments and we we have resources available for those communities hardest hit. i'm grateful for the cooperation of our state and local officials. conversations at this point there are no unmet needs. i think everyone is taking this very seriously. >> cenk: that was not a compilation of weather reports. we'll have that late for you in the show. that's president obama respond together disaster. being president, he's in charge. this is a very important moment. i don't know if you know this but we're very close to an election eight days away. how he handles this might be enormously important to how you vote in november. that's the president talking about the importance of fema. when you talk to mitt romney, if he talks like he did during the primaries, he told you he's not inter
the if you are debate. president obama was ahead and 98% voters didn't change their mind but 2% switched in favor of homicidal. who is actually going to show up and vote is the question. our model suggests there will be 2% more democrats nationwide than republicans. that is not be quite as good as 2004. if that holds, it's going to be very close election, probably slight edge with governor romney. >> sean: independents, we keep looking at these numbers. that is grouch by seven or eight points, president obama won -- there is a 16-point swing in many of these polls. is that the difference? >> it is the difference. if you go to some of the battleground states, independents by definition are going to pick the winner of that state. that is huge. i think the other thing that not talked about enough, generation gap. a whole lot of attention about the young voters. that are going to vote for president obama but don't know how many will show up. seniors are leaning toward governor romney and enthusiasm is way up compared to 2008. >> sean: if you look at the independents and add the intensity and
